If your Renault car or van is fitted with air-conditioning you’ll know the year round benefits of maintaining a cool temperature in your vehicle during the summer months.

Air-conditioning (or air-con) is not just for comfort. By keeping the cabin temperature cool in summer, air-conditioning contributes to driver alertness and therefore driving safety too. It’s a year round benefit - during winter months air-conditioning helps heat up a cabin to defrost windows quickly, to get you on your way. It also clears mist from the inside of the windscreen quickly to give you a safe view of the road ahead.

Renault recommend re-gassing the air-conditioning system every 4 years for Renault cars and vans, this service involves safely removing the existing gas, carrying out a pressure test on the air-conditioning system (to check for air-conditioning system leaks) before refilling with fresh gas which will improve cooling and heating performance.


A pollen filter is fitted between the air conditioning unit and the cabin. The filter removes particles in the air including pollen, exhaust fumes, dust and more. These particles are trapped in the pollen filter – preventing them entering the cabin. Renault recommends changing the pollen filter every 2 years, and that it is checked when the air-conditioning system is re-gassed. A new pollen filter allows air to pass through it quickly. A used filter in need or replacement will appear dirty and may restrict the flow of air through the filter. Replacing the pollen filter allows air in to the cabin quickly, and places less strain on the air-conditioning system. Always be sure to use Renault filters which give a long life, excellent filtration and air quality.

If your air-conditioning takes a long time to heat or cool your car or van, or just doesn’t perform as well as used to let Harts of Honiton check your Air-conditioning and pollen filter for £39. If the air-conditioning just doesn’t work its more than likely just in need of a re-gas which can often be carried out while you wait from just £89.

Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders.
